I did the Tulip Pedal last year. It was fun, not too challenging, and not too crowded. The one disappointment was that there really weren't many tulips along the way. Two or three big fields and that's about it. The route was quiet and well maked. I won't do it again this year but wouldn't rule it out in the future. There were also plenty of rest stops. I did the 60 something mile route.
